Make no mistake! Fashion on screen plays a huge role on fashion in the real world. In this spirit, the New York Times has just published a fascinating look at the impact fashions worn by prostitutes in film and television.
The article, by Ruth La Ferla, is a great and visually-rich expose of how haute couture has adapted and adopted styles from characters in shows and films as diverse as Blade Runner 2049, Pretty Woman, and The Deuce.
I love the article and I love the analysis of the subtleties. Everything from certain types of furs to garter belts and stockings is analyzed.
It’s a must read!
